My radio career began at KIEE-FM in Harrisonville, Missouri which later became KCFX in Kansas City. I worked there for 4 years before landing a position at WTAD and KHQA-TV here in Quincy doing a radio show and play-by-play sports. After doing TV Sports for KHQA, I worked for both WTAD and WQCY-FM (99Q). I moved over to WGEM as Operations Manager and then returned to WTAD as General Manager. In 2001 I joined Y101. I have been fortunate enough to win 6 Silver Dome Awards from the Illinois Broadcasters Association , including 5 for best Play-By-Play and one for Best Radio Show Entertainer. My favorite music is the Blues. The New York Yankees and the Kansas City Chiefs are my favorite teams. I played baseball for 24 years and my claim to fame is a double off of Rick Sutcliffe when we both played in Kansas City.

It’s been 16 days since the gunning down of 12-year-old Ray Humphrey Jr. on March 28. People in this community are still talking about the senseless killing. Unfortunately, the people talking are the wrong people. The people who should be talking are not. Those people know who did it and are afraid to give that person or persons up. Why not?

Play ‘Name That Canine’ With These Adorable Dogs Available for Adoption from Quincy Animal Shelter

Whenever I read a lost dog announcement on the air I always finish by saying "It's our never ending quest to get pet and owner back together again." When that happens, it's a great thing. For some dogs though, they are no one's pet, but really would love to be. They are waiting for adoption, waiting for someone like you to take them home. It is with them in mind that we will begin a weekly feature on this website to show you the dogs that the Katherine Road Animal Hospital has available for adoption through the City of Quincy Animal Shelter.

Security Enhanced at All Major League Baseball Games

Last Thursday I had the opportunity to attend a St. Louis Blues hockey game as the Blues hosted the Calgary Flames at the Scott Trade Center. Once in line at the Scottrade Center I stood waiting for the doors to open and when they finally did I entered the facility only to find myself waiting again until I could get a security clearance to proceed to my seat.
